What is it like to be affected by HIV/AIDS? A moving first-person account offers insight -- and basic facts. (Age 10 and up) ONE DAY I FOUND OUT THAT SOMEONE I KNOW -- MY BROTHER-IN-LAW, JAY -- HAD HIV/AIDS. AT THE MOMENT I HEARD HIS DIAGNOSIS, I REALIZED THAT I HAD STEPPED INTO THE QUICKSAND OF A NEW AND TERRIBLE WORLD -- AND I WAS SINKING FAST. Weaving together her own story with straightforward questions and answers, the author explains the real ways that HIV/AIDS can be transmitted and explores the common experiences and emotions that might be encountered by friends and family members of someone who has the virus. She also discusses why HIV/AIDS is often still kept a secret and the importance of treating this condition like any other. With up-to-date medical information that has been thoroughly vetted by experts, this first-person narrative offers an invaluable look at what it is like to watch someone you know battle HIV/AIDS. Back matter includes a glossary, a bibliography, resources for further information, and an index.
